Product Description

The Storm Boy DVD is the original 1976 classic Australian movie.

The Storm Boy DVD is an extraordinary Australian film of a boy growing up close to nature, isolated from the comforts and disciplines of a conventional upbringing, has enchanted generations.

Based on the children’s novel by Colin Thiele, Storm Boy has proven an Australian favourite for over 35 years.

Set in the Coorong in South Australia, Mike ‘Storm Boy’ Kingsley (11-year-old Greg Rowe, Blue Fin, The Last Wave) lives in a wildlife sanctuary around a salt water inlet. The film focuses on his friendship with a wild pelican and ‘Fingerbone Bill’ (David Gulpilil), who teaches the boy about the land, sea and the native people.

A beautifully crafted film for both children and adults, Storm Boy has a simple, direct story, fine performances and marvellously photographed scenes of sublime natural beauty.

Storm Boy (Greg Rowe, Blue Fin) lives with his recluse father, Tom (Peter Cummins, Frog Dreaming) on the Coorong, a hundred kilometre stretch of beautiful windswept dunes where the Murray River meets the sea. Here his spirit roams with his pet pelican, Mr. Percival, and his Aboriginal friend, Fingerbone Bill (David Gulpilil, The Tracker). He knows no other world. Suddenly there are intruders, the local teacher who wants him to attend school, a resentful wild-life ranger, duck hunters...Storm Boy, growing up, is forced to choose between a life of continued isolation and the challenges of the outside world. Regarded as one of the finest Australian films, Storm Boy is mastered from an all new 4K restoration.

Winner of the 1977 AFI Award for Best Film.

Note: All our DVDs are new Australian region 4 DVDs made for Australian DVD players.
